No one likes removing a tree, but sometimes circumstances make it necessary. Arborists recommend tree removal for the following reasons:
Dead or dying tree
Storm damaged and not salvageable
Leaning tree at risk of falling
Injured by an insect infestation
Crowding or harming other yard trees
Trash tree needing high maintenance
Growing in the wrong location or in the way of a project
As a community, we value our urban forests for their beauty, the value they add to our quality of life, and the benefits to wildlife and nature in the Metro Atlanta. Scott's Treewurk understands how much trees add to the investment in your property, too. That’s why we consider tree removal as one of the last options in our arsenal of tree preservation activities.
Sometimes, though,pests or diseases or storm damage or vitality issues require that a tree be removed. Our deciduous and conifer trees can suffer from storm-related problems like major branch and stem destruction. Insects, viruses and bacterial infections weaken significant upper story and below-ground structures.
Harm can come from human intervention as well. Trenching or other soil disturbance cuts roots. Compaction from heavy equipment destroys stability and crushes complex root systems. Even dents and dings from the occasional mower or weed eater contact result in permanent, irreparable injury.
The tree is gone, sometimes for many years, and yet the stump still remains.. Nature has not yet reduced it to chunks of easily disposable wood. It remains as a tripping hazard and unsightly reminder of what once was. That’s why we emphasize the importance of stump grinding in the Metro Atlanta area.
Storm Damage Prevention
Have your trees checked before a storm to make sure they will make it through the storm, Trimming a tree to allow the wind to pass through the tree properly can prevent a heavy canopy tree from being blown over.
We can also do an inspection of trees you may suspect have a problem and removing a problem before a storm can save you lots of money before the tree falls.
Tree Risk Assessment (Safety Inspection)
Not all trees appearing to have a problem are at risk. Likewise, all trees are not necessarily safe if problems are not apparent. To clear up possible confusion,Scott's Treewurk offers free, tree risk assessments to our customers in the Metro Atlanta area.
Some tree problems begin as seemingly minor issues, something the average property owner would assume is nothing to worry about. While a broken main limb or unstable roots are obvious, a woody powder dusting the bark or discolored leaves hanging on a few branches are also indicators that the tree could be in jeopardy.
